THE LAWS OF DERIHUNTER; 11. THE LAW OF FAITH
What makes a person that knew squat about water transportation, let alone how to run a business, decide to start one anyway?
Why did I even KNOW I would succeed?
One word; FAITH.
I am a Born Again Christian and one of the foundations of this way of life is FAITH.
There were a thousand and one reasons why doing this looked impossible, there is still a thousand and one reasons why this would not have worked.
I knew I could fail a thousand times, but I also knew that I just needed to be right once.
When I started the running around for my business over eight years ago, I had only two thousand naira in my savings account, probably a few quid in my student account that I left in the UK,but basically I wasn’t swimming in it.
I have since spent over 18 million naira and counting so far and will raise and spend way much more when we launch the business. How I was able to raise & spend this amount so far sometimes astonishes me, but you don’t know how much a little becomes a lot until you start something.
Now when I started Derihunter, I didn’t have a clue where, how or when I was going to raise the hundreds of millions of naira to launch our service.(I’m still not 100% sure of when, where or how!!!)
But I had and have FAITH that I could. In spite of this I have learned (a lot of times the hard-way) that I cant do this on my own by depending on my own intellect,or resources or even people (😕) but I can depend on The One with the inexhaustible resources, knowledge and understanding, Who knows my end even from my beginning, Who NEVER fails and I know that “He who began a good work in me is faithful to complete it”.
We are nearly done with raising the capital we need to launch our service(😕)This part of the project took longer than I ever expected (it is still taking longer than I expected) with a lot of dead ends, disappointments, straight out rejection etc etc….
Even the mode and the source we are raising the funds from is still a source of astonishment to me. (More of this in a later post). This just shows that plotting a path to a destination, doesn’t mean taking that same path to the destination.
Faith is one of the reasons I have stuck with this, knowing that; “…The things that are not seen (visions, dreams etc) call into being, the things that are.”
My Faith is about to turn my Vision to reality.
